We were invited to a graduation party for a wonderful young woman. We have watched her grow from an infant into the precious young lady we she is today. Although a gift of money was appropiate to help with her future plans I wanted to add something a little more personal so I set to work on this little purse and included a tissue cozy to match. I attached pockets to the lining for an ID or cash card and tucked in a gift card. Just a little something to for her to use long after the money is spent.
I didn't use a pattern and just made this up as I went and I think it turned out pretty cute. Hope the new graduate thinks so too.

Following through on what I started, I am building up my stash making a number of tissue cozies adding a simple tag a Bible verse from Revelation 21:4 KJV "And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away." I've passed a few on to friends who have helped me through some tough times. Feels so good to complete a number of small projects and see the stash being used! My stash has been growing for years and I am resolving to begin to use it up...or at least make use of some of those treasures. I will be posting more stash busters soon.
